    Looks like that jacket fits you perfectly. OTR, MTM, bespoke?

    Thrifted. [​IMG]

    That first photo is freaky.

    There will be thunderstorms in NYC by the afternoon, so today's fit was chosen with "what's next to the dry cleaner's" in mind.

    FWIW, and have at it, fellow posters . . .

    Jacket is too big for you, but I suspect you already know that. IMO it's a bit too long as well.

    Spoo, those shoes are sublime, but have I ever mentioned how much I hate your purple peak-lapel corduroy jacket?

    80s guy.

    Notes:
    • This is fresh from the cleaners. I asked her to adjust the waist on the trou, but I think she also lengthened them by an inch, and I didn't notice until I saw these shots.
    • Unsure whether worth keeping for the fun factor or should give away.
    • This is a Gianni Versace Couture from god knows what 80s year. I know it's not contemporary.
    • It's overcase outside today and rainy, so only indoor shots. Hat's a Stetson from BB.
    • Coat maybe a little short?
    • Trou need to be taken up a 1-1.5 inches
    • This was freshly pressed as of this moring. Humidity and sitting on public transit turned it to this wrinkled mess.
    • 51% silk / 49% wool

    Her lengthening of the trousers did you no favors. I'm not sure about the suit in general, though. I do think that it would benefit from a spread collar, but I don't know if that sort of collar is in your wheelhouse.​

    Most of my shirts are spread, A small number (maybe 3-4) have a point collar. This is one of them.

    It is not that the jacket is too big on me, it's that I'm too small for the jacket [​IMG] .

    Jacket length is a controversial subject around here, and I may be coming around to your point of view with the debut of my next suit - from Paul Stuart, the jacket is significantly shorter than my usual BB suits. I will be interested on the reaction of fellow posters as to its length.

    A made-to-measure service is very much dependent on the initial fittings and measurements taken - I cannot speak for the entirety of Brooks Bros., but I can recommend highly the services of Alex Hago, the gentleman in charge of MTMN at One Liberty Plaza in New York - very high degree of professionalism, and an expert at his job. The one suit fitted by him for me is quite handsome, as are the shirts that I had made at the same time.



    Again, thanks very much for the opinion.

    This pic illustrates exactly why I used to crop my head. But, ya'll wanted head shots, so you get them...complete with me in the middle of a blink.

    Time for red.

    Have a good one,

    Mike

    You look 100% better without the goatee.

    I'm the opposite. I shaved the beard and my flabby-ass jowl is uglying up my look.


    Nice, Titsworth. New suit? New alterations?

    mktitsworth, good call on losing the goatee.

    Jacket is much better than your others, but I still see some shoulder divots.


    You know what they say in real estate, titsworth: Location, location, location. [​IMG]

    Major, major improvements!! Great fitting jacket. And congrats on your victory. Deets on that watch? Looks like a contender.

    Thanks. I'm still unsold as to the lack of facial hair. I hate the cleft in my chin and feel that my jaw has too much hang. The suit I've had almost a year and has shown up once before. It is going in for some work soon though. Shoulders fit pretty well and where they're supposed to in the front, but the padding is such that there's a gap around the back. Found a new tailor recently so I'm going to see what he can do with it. The watch is by Adee Kaye. Nothing terribly fancy, but keeps time well and looks good.
